Today, March 8th, is celebrated worldwide as the International women’s day. It is a day set aside to celebrate the impact of women in all spheres of life.
Women are a masterpiece. A proof of God’s artistry. We embody so many virtues, dimensions, and graces.
In time past and even our contemporary time, we have seen the rise of many great women in literally every walk of life; the economy, culture, politics, religion, and more.
It’s been proven time and time again that women are really unstoppable. In fact, I believe that God loves this earth, and that is why He blessed it with the woman.
Let’s take a look at what the Word of God has to say to women. There are many scriptures that talk about women. They say different things about her. I decided to get some and share here. I’ve had this post sitting in my drafts for months now and what better day to share it than today?
These scriptures are beautiful and would inspire you, teach you, instruct you, and guide you. Some of them were directly written for women, while a few others were not, but they apply to women as much as men.
The scriptures below are scriptures you should read, meditate on, and share with every woman you love.
